As an expat in London, one of the top questions I get from friends and family (and their friends and family many times removed) is what to see and do when coming to London. And, let’s be fair – I don’t blame them! Recommendations from people you trust are a huge advantage when traveling. With my family coming to London for 7 days, there was no better time to put my curated list of restaurants, hotels and attractions to the test. Check out my curated 7-day itinerary and let your travel planning begin!
Whether you’re a local or a tourist, I’ve created my ultimate London guide to share my favorite London travel guides, hotels, restaurants and other must-see attractions. I have lived in London since January 2015 and this guide will be updated periodically as I explore and review new places in London. The ‘London Guide’ lives on the top header bar of my blog, but can also be found here: http://www.thesavvybostonian.com/london-guide/.
Check it out and as always, I appreciate your recommendations for good places to try!
Time flies when you’re having fun! With longer days and warmer weather in London, I spent lots of time outside. I also traveled more than usual with a weekend jaunt to Bruges in Belgium, followed by a week in Boston, Connecticut and NYC, all before coming back to London for the Bank Holiday weekend. Here are my photo highlights!
Ah, Regent’s Park. My absolute favorite park in London! With 395 acres to explore, including the Queen Mary’s Gardens which features more than 12,000 roses, there is so much to love about this amazing park. Here are a few photo highlights from my recent stroll there.
July was another busy month of travel, with a trip to NYC/CT, Paris and Munich. I also had a visitor in London, which allowed me to do a bit more sightseeing around town. Here are the photo highlights.
